Ex-Blizzard Developers have teamed up for their next project called Broken. They’ve started a Kickstarter so they could crowdfund the project which is said to be an Episodic Horror game which is mainly inspired by titles such as Half Life and The Walking Dead.
Broken is an episodic third-person action adventure game series set in the year 2021. This is an original story that follows the personal adventure of Logan Kyle, a Navy Seal, and his family as they experience the end of the world on the front lines of an extremist group’s catastrophic global biological weapon attack, resulting in death and a rare, but most horrific mutation.
With the horror genre in a rather tepid state since the new generation launched, with games like The Evil Within and a multitude of rather disappointing Resident Evil remakes dropping, gamers are thirsty for a fresh take on the Horror genre.
Broken’s focus is 100% story driven; all aspects of the game will support that goal. We will be doing away with some of the time draining staples of the current action-adventure scene such as repetitive puzzle-based level design, arbitrary collection artifacts, obscenely difficult enemy spawn encounters, and superfluous achievements.
The Kickstarter is asking for $275000 in funding with reward tiers from $1 (for your name in the credits) to $10000 if you’re feeling particulary generous. Access to the game will start at $10, which isn’t too bad.
The game is set to launch first on Mac/PC and the developer is expecting to launch it on Xbox One and other platforms shortly after the Official September 2016 date.
